Question special
Lead Moderator

I'd like to start by thanking our authors and experts for their time and anticipated contributions to our discussion over the next several days.

The LABS Consortium has provided much needed prospective data to the obesity and bariatric surgery communities, and it is a pleasure to be part of this discussion of this Teen-LABS study.

In case you haven't been active in one of these discussions previously, we welcome all questions that can either be directed toward a specific individual or broadly for any of the authors or experts to reply. Over the next several days I will be posting at least one new question daily and look forward to an active discussion.

Are there any questions from the community? If so, please feel free to post them at any time!
